Fashion show raises $1,800 for Ruth’s House
HAVERHILL — Ruth’s House recently celebrated the life of Robin Kelly Frans with a “Be Fierce” fashion show that raised more than $1,800 for Ruth’s House.
Taking part were Georgetown shop owners Rita Stone of Vintage Vault, Miranda Prosniewski of Bent Emporium, Lisa Scala of Lisa Scala Handmade Jewelry, and Madeline Celletti of Bohemian Boutique.
Frans, owner of Bent Emporium, was a long-time Ruth’s House volunteer. The event celebrated her life and her contributions to both the fashion and local communities.
At Ruth’s House, customers find clothing and houseware items at a great price, and more importantly, purchases directly supports the organization’s mission. Ruth’s House relies on community-donated items to sell in its thrift shop. Every piece of donated clothing is handled by a donation receiver, unpacked, inspected for quality, placed on hangers, priced, and then moved to the store floor to be available to both families receiving vouchers, and customers who purchase clothing. Ruth’s Thrift Shop is located at 111 Lafayette Square. Visit online at www.ruthshouse.org.
